would like to make the layout like this.
two types of PCB with different mod keys, and with the same case.
all come with split backspace.

Thanks for keeping Option A.

May I ask once more for some space before the arrows? I guess I can solve it myself by omitting the control_right. I’d prefer to feel a distinct left edge with my index finger.

space before the arrows in a 660-layout is a little strange IMO.

Yeah at first it is weird. I think it will make for a better typing experience though.

Maybe it’s fine for a 60% kb or smaller, but for such a lovely layout like this one, it needs these small details.

It is roughly the same gap as the far left (between the control_left and the F-keys). And it’s a similar gap to my tenkeyless (which would make a comfortable transition for other buyers too).

I like the modifier placement which we’ve settled on, but this is almost a deal breaker. Please prototype it for yourself and see.

* rjchatfield puts on his `Hat of Understanding`

I’m pleading my case because it’s my own strong preference. But there are other buyers who might think otherwise. Is there anyone else that feels strongly about having the arrows flush against the right_control?

The other thing to consider is that you wanted to use the same case for both PCBs… which means I need to convince *everyone* that the gap is a must have (which it totally is ). That would leave you with the R1 of:

Left:  |1.25|1.25|1.25| 2.25 | 1 |
Right: | 2.5  |1.25|1.25|1.25| |arrows
Right: | 2.75 |1.25|1.25| 1 | |arrows
Right: | 2.75 |1.25| 1 |1.25| |arrows

First option might be too difficult to get spacebars for?

But what does everyone think?

But what does everyone think?

I understand the appeal, both aesthetically and for more efficient typing, but I've never needed that space nor found it beneficial.

The spacing makes right side 1.25 (x3) look much better, which I like a lot, but it limits options. If I understand this correctly, we'd be stuck with 2.25 | 1.25 (x3) on the right side as anything else would look awkward or simply wouldn't fit. In the image linyaofred posted, there is a 2.25 and (3) 1.25, for a total of 6u available space. So the latter two options you posted for the right side won't actually fit.

If we want left side to be consistent with right side we'd stuck with 1.25 (x3) | 2.25 | 1u, which means two 2.25 keys as spacebars. That might be a problem. To accommodate the 2.75 bar we'd have to use 1.5 | 1.25 | 1.5. Who knows, that may work for some people. But it would feel imbalanced to me. Even though I do feel it looks pretty good.

Personally I liked linyaofred's prior layout best. 1.5 | 1.25 | 1.5 | 2.75 on left, 2.25 | 1.5 | 1.25 | 1.5 on right. With separate holes in PCB for option of 1.25 (x3) | 2.25 | 1u on left and 2.75 | 1.25 (x3) on right. I think this creates the best versatility and functionality to accommodate the biggest range of preferences.

I just realized that the right shift is also 2.25. This would mean no base kit I'm aware of would have enough shifts. Any chance of having a split right shift option as well? I think a 1.25u and 1u there would get us down to 2 2.25u and 1 2.75 in a best case and would allow base kits to fully cover the layout.

+1 for the spaced off arrow cluster. As someone who has tried most of the layouts out there long-term, I must say this is a godsend for anyone who uses the arrow keys often, especially for coding. Even in the case that you don't, it is pretty helpful to have a physical barrier to the arrow keys to help with homing, especially when using a split board. I personally like the aesthetic, but that's just an opinion.

Anyway I'd be down to get this board in pretty much any of the latter layouts suggested. Spaced arrows or not.

I think the votes were probably dominated by aesthetics. Now compatibility comes into the picture, some tweaks can be done to enhance that.

This is awesome. I will definitely buy this once it's available. I like the most recent image posted with the split backspace as well as the stepped off arrow cluster. LOVE IT!

Couple of questions: it says pre-soldered in the notes for the board, as well as hot swap sockets, does this mean this kit will come partially assembled and all we need to do is pop in some switches and caps and screw together the case? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding that.

Also will it use QMK?

Well, the symmetric spacebar in layout B and C looks better to me due to aesthetic issues. Layout B uses almost all ansi mod keys like 1.25u ctrl alt cmd, making it easier to find keycaps. All in for B!

Also, the 4 mm integrated plate seems to be popular these days. Would you please consider that?

Here comes the update for this keyboard.

we make a functional prototype for it.
214343-0

use a mitosis layout for testing.
now the rgb in receiver of the keyboard works
214349-1

and we have succeed in making it compatible with VIA Configurator (a testing version) to make the layout programming easier for beginner.
214347-2

things TBD before the keyboard ready:
1. Multimedia keys on receiver.
2. RGB underglow on the left and right side of the keyboard.

Option D is better, but not exactly my liking.
Probably make one of the left modifier to be 1u so that the left space is 2.25u? (for GMK compatibility because 2u GMK key is not often)

like this?

but the option A looks better.
Most of custom split keyboard I see (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, because splits is kinda a niche layout) have another key in between the spacebar.
I have three splits, both of them has 1U in between the space keys and one of them not (this is one is mass manufactured, if I have the chance to have a key in between the spacebar, I would).

In my opinion, the reasons for this are:
  • The lower right of the left side of the split keyboard is where the natural thumb rests. If we have two keys easily reachable, it's more ergonomic. If all the modifiers on the left split are all on the left of the spacebar, your left thumb will travel more
  • Since both of my splits are using Bootmapper, double action (FN/SPACE in one key) is not available or reliable enough. Thus having individual keys for FN and Spacebar is preferred.  This related to number 1 since it's more ergonomic to have two keys near.
  • Since not all people use the same hand for hitting the space (I personally use my right thumb when typing, and left thumb while gaming, obviously) I personally don't expect all of the people binds their space keys with space and FN. For me I bind both space keys with space. Thus having an extra key for FN is preferred

And again, this purely my opinion and does not represents major users of split keyboards.
Another thing to keep in mind since it will use QMK, I heard good things with the double action (FN/space) feature. Can someone chime in?
So option D would not be a dealbreaker for me.

In my opinion for the layouts,
This post > Option A (because standard 2.25u and 2.75 space keys) > Option D.
Other options, I would not buy, sorry.

So it would look like this (sorry for the lazy layout...) for the left side bottom row.

I used a 2.75 (space/backspace), 1.25 (FN), 2.25 (space/delete) split spacebar 60's for a long time and also used 2.25,1.25,2.75 for a while.  Now I use a non-split spacebar (space/FN).

I used the 1.25 a lot (+ IJKL for arrows) and for long use the 2.75,1.25,2.25 is a lot more comfortable to me...but the tradeoff was the 2.25 was a little cramped (I space with my right hand and have to curl my thumb a little).  With 2.25,1.25,2.75 the 1.25 was a little stretch...annoying to me because I used it constantly.

Lately I've been using a normal spacebar (space/FN)...for aesthetics on my M65A :)  There's a slight delay when using space/FN that can be a downside for gamers.  I also really miss not being able to backspace/delete on the split spacebar.

IMO a 2-way split spacebar is the best compromise.  Since I space with my right hand, I'd prefer the 2.75 on the right side so it doesn't feel cramped.  No space/FN on the left space so it doesn't impact gaming...right space can be used for space/FN...so I can still use my thumb for FN.  It's the best of both worlds to me.

Some side notes:
- I still use FN + IJKL for arrows even on 65%.  The dedicated arrows are inconvenient to me.
- Just my opinion of course but I like split spacebar backspace way way better than the HHKB backspace spot.  I can live without delete on the split.
The reasoning for both is my fingers rarely need to stretch from the home row.

Almost forgot!  I'm excited for this board...I've got a Unigo66 on the way and if it works well I'll probably (GMK carbon burned my wallet whole) get in on this drop.

You're tempting me a lot with this and the Think65 :)  Based on Unigo66 (great btw), I think some battery related improvements would be nice.

To change batteries on the Unigo66, you have to remove the back of the case by unscrewing 5 small hex screws on each side.  I'm concerned they'll get stripped eventually (I already partially stripped one).  I'd like to see more robust screws, or better yet, a simpler way to change the batteries.

I don't like dealing with button batteries.  The button battery enclosure isn't very sturdy and getting the batteries in and out of it is kind of a hassle.  I'd prefer standard AA or AAA batteries instead of button batteries especially if they'd last longer.  I wouldn't mind at all if this meant a heavier or bulkier case.

This is not surprised at all, actually we call this a G2 continuity , there are G3 and G4 continuity in car body design, which means the change rate (even the change rate of rate of change) of curvature are continuously :cool:

  • bluetooth
  • replaceable batteries!!!
  • receiver with macro pad (please make this happen)

Will the new receiver work with the UniGo66 too? Would totally be down for a new receiver if that's the case!

it can not work with unigo66 now. but we will soon make a updated pcb for unigo66 which can work with the micro pad receiver and even the via-config. it will be on sale after we fully tested it.

Does the PCB proto mean that the blocker before the arrow keys has been ruled out? It would be awesome to at least have it as an option, as it's only a .25u blocker

+1 for the .25u spacer before the arrows!!

Many great keyboards have it and for good reason. I’m tempted put a low-profile XDA on that right control to make the arrows somewhat distinguished.

Great! I was expecting a simple "not possible" so stoked to hear there's an updated PCB in the works. :)

Is there any kind of tenting capability planned?

Any updates on this? If it’s no longer going through ALF, who else can manufacture this?
